    Hi, we are going for 1 day at Hollywood Studio. Since we can't get a dining plan, what options do we have left for lunch and diner?

    Hi Veronique! Welcome to the Disney Parks Moms Panel!

    It looks like your day in Disney's Hollywood Studios in coming up in just FOUR days! I know you will enjoy this theme park ... especially the all-new Toy Story Land!

    I have good news for you - you don't need any of the Disney dining plans to enjoy the delicious restaurants in any of the theme parks! There are quite a few restaurants to choose from, so I suggest browsing their menus prior to arriving for your day so you can have a plan of where to dine ahead of time.

    For Quick-Service restaurants, you do not need a reservation and you typically order from a counter and pick up your food at the window, then find a table. If you download the My Disney Experience mobile app, you can actually use Mobile Food and Beverage Ordering to order and pay in advance and just pick up your food at the window. Super easy!

    For Table-Service restaurants, reservations are HIGHLY recommended. I just looked for availability for the date of your visit for a party of four people and found dinner reservations available at a few locations! Again, looking through the menus of each location is a great way to decide where you want to dine. But definitely make those Table-Service reservations sooner rather than later because each restaurant does fill up!

    Enjoy your day, Veronique!
